The Los Angeles Lakers have started their Plan B after Dwight Howard decided to take his talents to Houston. Even though the Lakers missed out on the big man, the front office has done a great job recovering and setting this team up for next season.
Thus far, the Lakers have brought in three new faces, and they all have the potential to contribute greatly once the offseason concludes. There is still some roster spots to fill up for the Lakers, and names like Lamar Odom and Sasha Vujacic seem like real possibilities.
